When the kids are tired of lis­ten­ing to their iPod, play­ing with their Nin­tendo, watch­ing a DVD or star­ing out the win­dow – it’s time to start them on that clas­sic of all clas­sic road trip ex­pe­ri­ences: The car game. The most sim­ple games can bring lots of laugh­ter and fun on an other­wise bor­ing drive.

Some of these games can be re­stricted to just the back­seat pas­sen­gers, but some the whole fam­ily can en­joy. So get silly, get bond­ing and get from point A to point B faster.
